About Andy Taylor

I live in the UK with my wife and two daughters. We originally bought Galatea Villa to use as a holiday home for our family holidays, but in 2010 we bought a second villa which we now use. We visit Cyprus every school holidays and ensure that during this time we visit Galatea Villa to check that everything is perfect for our guests.

Andy Taylor purchased this villa in 2005

Why Andy Taylor chose Coral Bay

We wanted a holiday home which was near amenities such as restaurants, tavernas, cafes, and the beach and found this location which we then had the villa custom designed and built. Private but within a short walk of everything as we come out here to relax and enjoy the weather.

What makes this villa unique

We put in every effort to ensure that the villa is of a high standard so that we and guests can enjoy its use. We do realise that most guests to our villa work very hard throughout the year and in most instances can only get away once a year for a relaxing holiday and so we do our utmost to ensure that the villa is in tip top condition for guests to enjoy.

If you do choose to stay at Galatea Villa, we do ask guests to feedback to us their thoughts on the villa and if there is anyway we could improve it.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

Whole experience of booking through Owners Direct was excellent from start to finish. The communication from the villa owners was superb and the villa itself could not be faulted. It was as described, in a great location close to restaurants and bars but was still in a very quiet area. The villa was spotless and the service we received from Management team/cleaners/pool cleaners was great, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone who wanted a quiet holiday in a great location but still within walking distance of the many superb restaurants/bars.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely clean villa in a good location close to shops, restaurants and beach. No need for a car unless you want to do sightseeing further afield. Local buses to Paphos harbour are frequent and cheap (€1.50 per trip) so easy to get away from Coral Bay if you want a day out. Pool was a bit cold at the time of year we stayed (Oct/Nov) but the sea is still very warm, so we swam there instead!

This villa is just perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was how clean it was.

The welcome pack is a lovely touch ,and the information pack is very helpful.

It was lovely to meet Carrie on the first day,she was very friendly and made you feel that you could contact her at any time ( the same with Andrea).

All of the bedding and towels were spotlessly clean ( the blankets and towels were so soft and cozy).

The pool is amazing and was just perfect for the 6 of us ,we have 4 chidren aged 12-18 and they made good use of it all day and every day having fun with balls,inflatables( including a big pink flamingo) and noodles for a quiet float about.

The location is spot on , just a few minutes walk to the safe,friendly and fun bars, restaurants

and shops.

The buses down to Paphos are good too (every 15 mins is great) .We had a funny bus driver on our return trip who although it was only 9pm was worried people were going to fall asleep

and kept everyone awake over his mike calling out the names of all the hotels on the journey and shouting out"NO SLEEP" .

We used SEACAVES taxis for airport transport and they too were fantastic and we thought that 45 euros for the 6 of us was a great price ( we had a lot of luggage and the drivers were very helpful and friendly)

There is a lovely area to sit and eat with a BBQ although to be honest we cheated as we were only having some burgers and bought a couple of picnic BBQs and rested them on the bbq grill.

We were told about Phillipos supermarket and yes it was brilliant, we could buy anything and everything and with us fussy lot it was nice to buy some branded items ..although we did find the little supermarkets to be handy and not too expensive.

I could go on and on even more...

... we had a fantastic holiday and would love to have another visit in this "JUST PERFECT"

villa .. thank you for letting us stay..Mel,Bryan and 4 very happy kids :) and thank you again for the lovely touch with the card and fizz for our celebrations.. we enjoyed it one evening sitting outside with the kids,our burgers and a game of cards.... bliss !!!!

Wonderful villa, great location, fantastic outside area

  • 5 of 5

We visit Cyprus at least once a year and this is definitely the best villa we have stayed in. The inside is spacious, very clean and has everything you need.

The outside area is fantastic. The pool is a great size and there's plenty of sunbeds and places to sit and relax. There's also shaded areas for when the heat gets too much!

All the amenities are within walking distance.

We will definitely be visiting this villa again. The owners were very helpful with the booking and catered to all our needs.

The sandy beach of Coral Bay is within a five minute walk away.


Paphos International Airport is 20km away, and Larnaca International Airport is about 1.40 hour away.


The villa is located in the heart of Coral Bay and is within a short walk of banks, restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bars, and shops as well as the sandy beach of Coral Bay. Paphos International Airport is 25km away, and the nearest large town is Paphos which is located less than 10 mins by car and has a large selection of shops, restaurants and a good night life. However, most guests remain within Coral Bay which is within a 5 minute walk and offers all amenities including a sandy beach.

Further Details:

If you would like to hire a car for your holiday, we recommend a local company which will offer you a great deal on car hire. Included in their service, they meet you at the airport (Paphos) and deliver the car to you there. You can then follow them to the villa where they will hand over the keys to the property. This means that you will save the arrival and return journey to the airport in taxi fares. Their car hire rates are very attractive and we have always been encouraged by the reviews posted to us by previous guests. Alternatively, if you would like a taxi to collect you at the airport we will send a trustworthy local taxi driver to collect you and he will have the keys to the villa for you.
